(Dwarf Leatherwood) is a reasonably common shrub or small tree
in western and southern Tasmania. It is most common in alpine and
sub-alpine areas where it grows in relatively undisturbed heath, but
it extends virtually to sea level in scrubby vegetation. In contrast
its relative, E.
lucida, is largely restricted to rainforest or mixed forest.
There are two subspecies of E. milliganii. E. milliganii ssp.
milliganii (top two photos), grows north of a line running from
Macquarie Harbour to Bruny Island. The leaves of this
subspecies are oblong. Those of the southern subspecies, E.
milliganii ssp. pubescens (bottom photo), are ovate.
